Redcentric

Redcentric provides highly efficient, cost effective and secure managed IT solutions that enable our public sector customers to align their services to the ever-changing needs of their citizens, patients, students and tenants.

We have long been a part of the public sector landscape as it looks to digitally transform, drawing on a broad portfolio to drive modernisation.

Our work across HM Government and particularly health and social care has established Redcentric in the highest echelon of service providers. We are a strategic partner to NHS Digital and have places on some of the UK’s major frameworks:

  • Crown Commercial Service
  • Health and Social Care Network
  • YPO
  • North of England Commercial Procurement Collaborative
  • PFH – Procurement for Housing
     

Any healthcare organisation looking for trusted, proven technology and consultancy just needs to assess our credentials:

  • Peering Exchange provider for all HSCN CN-SPs
  • Second largest CN-SP after BT
  • Secure host of NHS Spine 2 and CIS
  • 11,000 N3 to HSCN connections successfully migrated as of Summer 2020
  • Supporting c. 300 healthcare customers and 1000s of healthcare gateway connections
  • End-to-end public cloud offering, with access to Azure, AWS and our own IaaS via HSCN
     

Capabilities are not limited to long-term programmatic change. Indeed, the pandemic has highlighted how agile and responsive we can be, getting tens of thousands of clinicians, GPs, administrators and business support staff working from home securely within 6-48 hours of the service request landing.

As one customer put it “Great job turning this around the same day in these challenging times – our NHS organisation is flat-out with home working requests due to Covid-19.”

Core service offerings

Public sector cloud

  • Enabling the public sector to put their citizen and patient experiences first and remove any risk by assisting on every step of your cloud journey. We can advise you on migrating your legacy systems to the cloud and provide you with a highly secure, resilient and compliant infrastructure.
    Our cloud services deliver the agility you require to improve operational efficiencies and productivity, while also removing significant capital expenditure from your budgets, freeing up public funds to enhance front line services rather than supporting legacy systems.
    By working with Redcentric you have a partner that operates to the highest ISO standards, is compliant with cabinet office guidelines and protects your applications and data in our highly secure UK data centres.
     

Networking

  • Connect your people and your citizens to the applications and data they need wherever they may be. Redcentric can support you in the drive to streamline processes and services by seamlessly connecting your organisation to the secure public-sector networks, including Public Services Network (PSN) and the Health and Social Care Network (HSCN).
    Embrace wireless networking to deliver greater mobility for your people, link all your facilities together through cost-effective Wide Area Networks (WANs) and SD-WAN technology, and leverage public sector partnerships through secure connectivity into shared networks and services.
     

Collaboration

  • Become highly accessible to your citizens, patients, students and tenants by embracing cloud telephony and collaboration solutions.
    We are helping healthcare providers deliver truly integrated care, local government to join-up the services they deliver to their citizens and education establishments to link every part of their network.
    We do this by providing IP telephony that connects every part of your organisation as well as collaboration technology (including messaging and video) that enables your teams to work closer together, breaking down silos and enabling them to innovate their services.
     

Managed IT

  • Accelerate your adoption of digital technologies and the value that these can deliver to the people you serve, without the risk, by working with a specialist partner who truly understands the needs and challenges of the public sector.
    Removing elements of your infrastructure management away from overstretched in-house resources affords you the ability to focus your people on areas of innovation and development, delivering greater value to your organisation.
    By trusting in Redcentric to manage key areas of your IT environment, you will be able to reduce costs, while benefitting from our experience and expertise of delivering highly secure, resilient and agile digital infrastructure.

For three decades Redcentric has been a trusted Managed Service Partner to the healthcare and broader public sector. Today we continue to work with NHS Digital, CCGs, NHS Trusts and social care organisations to make good change happen: to improve patient outcomes while enabling smarter working, greater cost efficiencies, more stringent security and the transition to a modern, fit-for-purpose operating environment.
